Scanning interferometry technique for through-thickness defect/damage evaluation in multi-layered transparent structures

IntroductionHigh-strength, impact-resistant windshields, security components, and other multi-layered transparent composites (TC) are often constructed with glass and polymer laminates. Precise measurement of flaws in these structures, in all three dimensions, has not been possible. As a result, manufacturing costs include unnecessary scrap, and components...
